Top 10 “One Last Job” Scenes

11 September 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With November Man out, excitement for Pierce Bosnan’s return to spying is at an all-time high for many James Bond fans. November Man, based on the seventh installment of Bill Granger’s book series called There Are No Spies, is about ex- CIA agent Peter Devereaux (Pierce Bosnan). While living a quiet life in Switzerland, Devereaux is ejected out of retirement for one last mission. Although the concept of the “one last mission/job” is not a new concept for Hollywood, it definitely has its place in cinema history, branching out to a wide range of reasons why our beloved characters are being pulled back into their past lives. From a retiree’s last gig, to the bad-boy-gone-good-and-then-bad-again mission, to the revenge premise, mythology of the ex-professional can surely delight and excite us to champion our heroes for one last fight. Here are scenes from ten incredible “one last job” films, »

Believe It or Not: ‘The Greatest American Hero’ Joins TV’s Parade of Remakes

30 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen J. Cannell’s “The Greatest American Hero” is suiting up for a revival at Fox, a network that didn’t exist during the show’s initial run on ABC in 1981-83. The quirky action-comedy is one of a spate of classic-tv remakes percolating at the major networks.

Rodney Rothman (“22 Jump Street”) is penning the script for the new “Hero” and will exec produce with Phil Lord and Chris Miller for 20th Century Fox TV. Tawnia McKiernan, a busy TV director who is the daughter of Cannell, will exec produce along with Seth Cohen, head of TV for Lord and Miller’s 20th TV-based banner.

“Hero” had a bumpy run starting as a midseason entry for ABC in March 1981.  But the show remains well-loved among TV buffs for its offbeat mix of comedy and fantasy. The original starred William Katt as a goofy high school teacher who has an alien »

Some of her movies have been well-received acting vehicles. Some of her movies have been gargantuan commercial products. There is no place where those circles overlap on the Venn diagram. 

It's worth pondering her atypical celebrity.

From Oscar-winning to Homeland and more, here's what the cast of My So-Called Life have been up to over the past 2 decades...

Twenty years has passed since we were first introduced to the characters of My So-Called Life, twenty years! Where has the time gone? And more importantly when did I get so old?

While most of you won’t really care too much what I’ve been up to since the show finished, let’s take a look at what the actors have been up to in the years since the cancellation of what is frankly the greatest teen TV drama ever.

After breaking out in My So-Called Life, Danes focused on her film career first with a leading role in 1995’s Little Women and then supporting roles in smaller but interesting films like Home For The Holidays, How to Make An American Quilt and »

Need a Vacation? Take It Online with Your Favorite Classic Sitcoms!

28 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Summer means two things for most Americans: A family trip and a lack of decent TV. However, if you're currently stuck at home, wishing you could find something better to watch, we've got an easy, free solution. You can just ride along with your favorite sitcom of choice!

Facts of Life's Kim Fields and Lisa Whelchel Reunite in New TV Movie: 'It's Like Old Times'

19 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Lisa Whelchel and Kim Fields landed starring roles on The Facts of Life in 1979, they had no idea that their characters would become '80s icons - or that they'd become such close friends. After Facts ended in 1988, the girls (along with Nancy McKeon and Mindy Cohn) went their separate ways but always kept in touch. Fields, 45, stayed in the industry, starring on Living Single before going behind the camera. (She has directed and produced dozens of sitcom episodes.) She lives in Atlanta with her husband, Christopher Morgan, and her two sons: Sebastian, 7, and Quincy, 7 months. Whelchel, 51, retired from »

Review: Third Person, Awful People In An Awful World

1 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

As amply evidenced by his latest film, Third Person, Paul Haggis is a purveyor of pain, which isn't something I would ever expect from someone who wrote for the 1980s TV sitcom The Facts of Life and created small-screen shows such as Walker, Texas Ranger and Due South. It's possible that Haggis' career since then has been a reaction to those experiences, although the more likely explanation is that he is more willing than most to tap a deep personal reservoir of despair, whether from personality or knowledge, and express dark emotions through his characters, especially in films he has directed, such as Crash and The Next Three Days. The latter, at least, had a strong narrative hook that gave the film a modest impetus....

The underappreciated film performances of Jim Carrey

15 June 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With a potential comeback on the cards for Jim Carrey, Rob looks through the hidden gems of his career.

Feature

Alrighty then. To get straight to the point – Jim Carrey’s career hasn’t been up to much lately has it? Certainly as leading man, at least. His last big-hitter was 2009’s A Christmas Carol, while his most recent leading role was 2011’s Mr Popper’s Penguins.

His latest performance outside of cameos was an interesting part in Kick Ass 2 though, a promising turn which left many audience-members wanting more from his character. With the trailer dropping recently for Dumb And Dumber To as well, the hints of a comeback for the iconic performer have continued to grow.

There’s been more positivity towards Dumb And Dumber To in comments than we might have expected (although this welcoming response was far from unanimous), which is undeniably a positive sign for the fledgling star. »

The (Not So) Secret TV Past of George Clooney: The Golden Girls, Street Hawk, The Facts of Life and More

4 June 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

George Clooney, Oscar winner. George Clooney, The Facts of Life star. They are the same person. Your favorite A-List actors weren't always on the top of the heap. Let's explore the (not so) secret TV past of your favorite stars. Clooney's first film appearance was in 1982 as an extra in And They're Off. Following his big screen debut, he hit TV with roles Riptide and Street Hawk. In 1984 he booked E/R, not to be confused with the breakout drama ER, and continued his guest starring spree, hopping around everywhere from The Golden Girls to Murder, She Wrote. Series regular and recurring roles came around, Bodies of Evidence, Sisters and Roseanne being a few of them, but everybody recalls Clooney's defining TV »

'Glee' Recap: 'Bash' Tackles Hate Crimes & Interracial Dating

8 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Glee episode "Bash" opened up on Tuesday night with Rachel (Lea Michele), Sam (Chord Overstreet), Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) walking in a candlelight vigil singing “No One Is Alone.”

Glee Recap

A neighbor of the gang was put into a coma after a hate crime beating. The four friends gather around a New York City lamppost, candles in hand with dozens of others to honor someone who very well could have been one of them. It was their neighbor’s friend, who’d been beaten up on Bleaker St. by some guys driving a pickup truck. Thankfully, he survived, but they note hate crimes are increasing in the city.

Cut from the emotional moment, Rachel is at Funny Girl rehearsal getting a pep talk from the producer. Rachel then asks him if she could push a rehearsal two hours back so that she can do her Midwinter Critique. »
